For Stephanie Dowda, Echoes of the Sublime is about risk. And she doesn’t mean the kind of risk associated with shock and awe, but rather that, in curating this exhibition at Emily Amy Gallery, she’s making an effort to push the boundaries of the photographers and subjects that are commonly presented in Atlanta.
With an interest in artists whose images cannot be removed from how they are made, Dowda’s own curatorial process was deliberate and nuanced. Through both the chosen theme and her interest in the technicalities of image making, Dowda has attempted to create a show that unabashedly revels in exploration, contemplation, and expertise. The product of a year of research and planning, the exhibition casts a net of artists from around the country. Echoes of the Sublime focuses on a small group of creators who show a range of their work, extending points of connectivity within their practice and to the others in the show.
